Technorati (html) tags inserting incorrectly

When I put html technorati tags into my message body:


they show up like this on my blog:
<!—technorati tags start—>
<!—technorati tags end—>

My pings are not working, and I wonder if it is related to that. Any
ideas on how to get it to insert the exact html? See http://www. if you want the full page source

thanks for any ideas. i am also using ecto to post if that gives you
some ideas.

That would be a function of whatever markup (probably Textile) that
you’re using. I believe, if it’s Textile, you can wrap this block
with stuff here to disable textile markup
there. Alternately, someone else may have a better solution.
